Question about 2005 Jeep Liberty

1 Answer

Fluids I got my oil changed recently and the guys at the place (one of these small drive in and thru oil change places) also told me I needed or should have my f & r differential fluids changed along with having my transfer case serviced. My vehicle is a 2005 Jeep Liberty Renegade with 59,000 miles on it. I never tow or off road with it. About 1/2 my driving is in town and the other half highway. Since I don't necessarily beat this vehicle, is it time yet for me to be changing servicing these 2 areas? I understand maybe it's time for the tranny fluid, but the other two I think they mentioned cuz they want to make the money. Can someone help me with this? Thanks!

My 2002 Jeep Sahara, 88,000 miles, was making extreme tapping noise for 2 weeks - now nothing. Was told needed to replace lifters! however, no noise for 1 month after inspection. Why no noise now? Am I...

If the noise is gone,the lifter is unstuck,don't worry about it.I would run 2 cans of a high detergent additive to the oil just to clean up the lifters before the next oil change and use a high quality oil on the next oil change.
Rislone makes a good product for a lifter cleaning. PUT 2 CANS IN THE OIL.

Burnt small from hundai elantra when turn off engine

Do you mean smell? If so, when was the last time you changed your oil, if it was recent then it may be just some of the excess oil from replacing the oil filter. If it is this... the smell will go away after about 40 miles of driving. If it continues look for signs of excess fluids after your car has been parked overnight. If you do see some fluids, to help pinpoint the source... place a large piece of cardboard under the engine area, overnight (making note of the exact location) where ever the fluid is located then you will have an exact placement for the leak. Some fluids look the same oil, coolant, brake, transmission fluids.

Have Kia Sedona 2003 Automatic with a leak that is either steering fluid or transmisson fluid, are these fluids the same colour?

In most cases Automatic Fluid (ATF) is used as hydraulic fluid for power steering systems, so, yes, they are the same fluid. To identify the origin of your leak, place some sheets of news paper under the front of the car and see where the oil drops collect. Look above that and identify whether it is nearer the transmission or the power steering system. You may also be able to see the origin of the leak from beneath the car with the front raised on ramps (not jacks).

Upon start up there is a loud squeal. It continues while driving however when placed in neutral it quietly goes away. Recent oil change. Fluids good. 180,000 miles. Still occurs when a/c is off.

Try to isolate the noise. See if it's coming from the front of engine or transmission. Also try to see if it's on the left side or right side of engine. Once you have narrowed it down you then should be able to pinpoint the problem area. eg altenator, power steering pump, idler pulley etc.

I just purchased a 93 legend and after speaking to the parts dept at the dealer i think the oil and transmission fluids have been put in the wrong place... how do i drain the fluids and replace them...

First off - if your pull your dipstick and there is oil on it - then oil is in the right place.

Unless you have the tools - large jack - -pan - oil filter removal [ if transmission fluid is in there - it can wreck your car unless replaced ] etc - I would just take it to a trusted oil change place - right now Good Year is having an oil change special and they are professionals that can tell you for sure which fluid is where.

Good luck with it - let us know what you find out.
